Here are the details on the source from the taper:
"As for how I recorded it; I used a Sony Mini Disc recorder (I forget the model number, 510?), a cheap pair of microphones that I got from Radio Shack over 10 years ago that have held up remarkably well, and a battery box that I got from soundprofessionals.com...I end up losing the digital-ness, because I end up transferring the recording to my computer using Spin Doctor. That allows me to adjust the levels a little,
but not too much or it ends up sounding crappy."
The sound is remarkably good-warm and yet very crisp, anything but "crappy." There's some banter that's a little hard to hear at times, but that's rare. The music sounds spot-on.

Would like to hear more of these guys under better circumstances. This recording is for the most part hard to listen to.

Worth the listen
Great Set and great quality, really enjoyed this one.
p.s. Who gives a three star rating because "this band isn't my favorite?"... ridiculous

John's voice is shot by the end, or so he claims--could have fooled me. I like the newer songs in their semi-stripped down (guitar & bass) versions here. The show really heats up on the few songs they add the drums.

no denying the sound quality, but this band isn't my favorite.
